Questions & Answers
How does the Cuisinart Pressure Cooker Compare to the All-Clad Pressure Cooker you also sell? Do they reach the same PSI? How do the cooking inserts compare? What sets them apart in quality and/or features that results in the price difference?
Can this unit be used to do small canning?
Push-button control for multiple cooking options and programmed settings: low and high pressure, browning, simmer, sauté and automatic ‘keep warm’ feature. Also has a 99-minute timer and LED countdown, and cool-touch side handles for safety. Nonstick cooking pot and trivet included, and are dishwasher safe. 1000 watts of power. 6-qt. capacity.
This pressure cooker will not function as a small canner. We do have a Fagor Duo 9 piece pressure canning set available that I have attached as a recommended product. We also carry many canning tools seperately.
Unfortunately Breville states never to use oil or milk as your liquid if using the pressure cooking option. Deep frying in the pressure cooking mode is strongly discouraged.
Another customer mentioned that it could be used as a slow cooker in their review, but did not specify or give detail

Cuisinart does not reccomend that this be used as a slow cooker or crockpot however I have listed its functions, capabilities and settings below.
* Low Pressure
* High Pressure
• Browning – This preset temperature allows cooking over high heat, without the lid, before pressure cooking. Browning foods in a small amount of fat in this way seals the outer surfaces of meats and vegetables, producing a visually appealing, flavorful exterior with a moist, tender interior.
• Sauté – The preset temperature, done prior to pressure cooking with lid removed, allows you to quickly soften vegetables in a small amount of fat or liquid without browning, and to cook items such as rice (Arborio, brown, Carnaroli, white, etc.) for pilafs and risottos.
• Simmer – This preset temperature allows you to cook liquids at a lower temperature. It is primarily used to finish cooking some items, i.e. to add ingredients to a risotto, sauce, or stew or to continue cooking process to achieve preferred texture.
• Keep Warm – Holds and keeps cooked food warm for up to 12 hours. Automatic Keep Warm Feature: When LED display reaches, the pressure cooker automatically shifts to Keep Warm temperature. The Keep Warm light will turn on and unit will beep to indicate cooking is complete.

Does it work on a 220 Volt circuit?
This item is made only for North American electrical outlets of 110 volt circuits.
The cooking "pot" is aluminum coated with a non chipping unscratchable non stick coating. I use this pressure all the time, it is a great time saver. I promise you will love it.
